Cypriot Truths Noone Ever Mentions

There are two ugly truths about Cyprus nobody ever mentions. First, had it not been for the demand of Britain to maintain a sovereign presence on Cyprus no apatheid and no political deadlock provisions would have been incorporated into the Cyprus constitution, a constitution never approved by the Cypriot people meant to prolong Britain's colonial presence on Cyprus via a constitutional "divide and conquer" design. Second, had it not been for the British sovereign bases and their importance for wider western strategies, "Turkey" would have attempted to gobble up the entire island long ago.

NATO Loses One, Wins Two

I know all of us are busy, thus I shall be brief. Mayhem breaks out in "Turkey" between Kemalists and Islamists. Kurds draw their own "green line" and declare a de-facto North Kurdistan autonomy. Erdogan prevails militarily in the west and attempts to recapture the east. South Kurdistan declares its secession from Iraq and unites with North Kurdistan. The USA and various western followers support the new marriage and recognize the new Republic of Kurdistan. Kurdistan joins NATO, while at the same time Islamic "Turkey" is thrown out. The Republic of Cyprus immediately joins NATO too. NATO warns "Turkey" to remove its troops from Cyprus. Egypt, Turkey, Iraq and possibly Iran challenge NATO on the Israeli, Cypriot, Iraqi and Mediterranean fronts (EEZ).

Democracy's Power

Long ago I likened Erdogan to Gorbachev. Both unleashed the forces of democracy without truly understanding either its nature or its power. Democracy is beautiful, just like a sailboat crossing the waters, but few people appreciate the magnitiude of the forces that make up that beautiful image. The disintegration process is now visible in "Turkey", with just the tip of the tip of the iceberg discernible to the common eye.

"Bizonal" Absurdity

The current Cyprus talks are based on the "BIZONAL" philosophy. Unless I voice my objection, does it not
mean I indirectly endorse these talks? Or at the very minimum that I expect out of this process a solution that respects human rights to the fullest?

But isn't "BIZONALITY" by definition incapable to deliver a solution that FULLY RESPECTS HUMAN RIGHTS and a model that maintains the apartheid logic of 1960?

Photo of the Century: Fascism vs Stoicism

Fascism vs Stoicism
I love this photo (Taksim square, Constantinople, 01.06.2013)! I adore the lady's (in red) stoicism and calmness, in facing fascism. I bet this photo will remain eternal, a reminder for all Turkish liberals and democrats of what they had to endure on their path to true democracy and western freedom. I am also reminded of how upsetting it is to have "Turkey", at its level of maturity, barely grasping the fundamentals of western values, to be preaching Cypriots about how things should be, and the mix of apathy, self-interest, and hypocrisy of so-called Europeans, who have not the courage to stand up for European principles in Cyprus, an island that is an integral part of Europe's soul!

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
